Cardi B won’t face charges after the “mic-throwing” incident; police halt inquiry.

Las Vegas Police have decided to halt their investigation into a criminal battery incident involving rapper Cardi B, where she threw a microphone towards an individual in the audience. The occurrence transpired over the past weekend after a concertgoer seemingly splashed water at the performer. A video capturing the moment Cardi B took matters into her own hands at “Drai’s Beachclub” gained substantial traction on social media during that time.

The decision came after a comprehensive review of the case and consultation with the Clark County District Attorney’s Office. Lawyers representing the Grammy Award-winning artist expressed appreciation for the police’s diligent handling of the matter.

Multiple angles of the incident were caught on camera by various fans. Security personnel were observed surrounding the person responsible for the water splash while retrieving the rapper’s microphone. Earlier in the concert, Cardi B had playfully requested another audience member to spray her from behind, with her back turned to the crowd.

During a subsequent segment of the show, Cardi B clarified that the prior spray had been done at her request, on her back, and under her own instructions. However, she objected to the unexpected water toss that hit her face from a different audience member.

Las Vegas police initially received a report of battery from an attendee at the show. Nonetheless, they have now concluded that no criminal activity has taken place. Interestingly, the microphone involved in the incident is purportedly being auctioned on eBay by the owner of an audio company, with bids surpassing “$99,000.”

Cardi B is widely recognised for her hit songs, including I Like It, Up, Bodak Yellow, and WAP, a bass-heavy rap duet with Megan Thee Stallion. She is the latest in a string of performers who have experienced objects being thrown at them during their on-stage performances. Similar incidents involving artists like Pink, Harry Styles, Bebe Rexha, Ava Max, Kelsea Ballerini, and Adele have been reported recently, highlighting the challenges artists face in maintaining a safe and engaging live show environment.
